my housemate's boyfriend has been staying with me for almost three weeks, rent free, whilst his girlfriend and the other two housemates are away with university. this morning, the boyfriend came out of the room he's staying in and told me that I'm a bad housemate because I don't "respect the common areas". I feel like I can't really stand up for myself because I am the youngest (18) and he is 23ish.
tqc, 1, what does he mean by "respect the common areas"? and 2, is he out of line? I didn't really say anything, but my fiance says I should have told him to shove it.
